The Crossroads of the Aether
I'm putting together a Steampunk Circus - themed fashion show for charity. I have a few people booked, but I really need help to pull this together. I'm in need of a band, jugglers, unicyclists, vendors and anyone who would like to lend their talents to a good cause for a couple hours.
The pay won't cover your rent, but I can also cover transportation costs (reasonable of course), food & drink and provide photos for your portfolio.
Please help me make this successful. I'm beginning to freak out.
You can reach me at 914-862-0632.
Now, I know that 914 is just outside of New York City, but how many other people woudl know that? This is an international board -- not everyone here is your physical neighbour.
Also, a shouted 'HELP" with three exclamation marks gives potential readers no information whatsoever. A topic line stating when, where and who would be far more productive. "Circus Performers Needed, July 23rd, NYC Area" might get a better response than 'HELP!!!"
Just my 2 quid.
Oh CRAP!... You're RIGHT!
I'm so flustered, I completely forgot to say where it is. Damn it.
I'll take your advice, and rephrase the header.
Thank you so much!
The show is next Saturday, June 18th from 11am-1pm. I expect it to be quite the show.
All able (and otherwise) bodied SPers welcome to join in the fun. We'll even put you on the catwalk!
Dr. Fidelius has a point. Giving the "when" and "WHERE" is a good essential. -I particularly point to it to be a good rule to follow when posting, for example, on the "EVENTS" schedule. -Would save alot of "clicking","looking", and nae-saying.
Aside from that Liz, I wish you luck, but the commute from the Cape Cod area is a abit too much for Iphigenia and I to make in a weekend.
And we're just character performers. Daresay, in NYC, you'll find what you need.
Thank you Dr Teal,
I certainly understand not making the drive from the Cape.
As for proper posting... There's no question, I'm definitely learning from my mistakes.
You are out there and being proactive, and you are commended for that! Putting together an event is alot of work and headache. Looking at the slim schedule in our area, more of us need to take on the responsibility and get some things going. I also commend "Swifty" DeMilo's efforts in "NE Steampunks".
What really "grinds my gears" are the postings for large events in the "Events" thread that don't indicate their state, or even country, in the first line. If I know an event is in Indiana or New Zealand, I know I'm not goin' to be makin' that! (not directed to you Liz) Please save me the trouble of getting as far as "directions" before I know that I can't, realistically, attend an event.
Best of luck with the Circus. Sounds like great fun!
